This week, we have sweets on the brain.
If you've spent any time salivating over our sweet empanada case (it's okay, we do it, too), then you've probably wondered, "What's the deal with dulce de leche?" To solve the mystery, it's a sweet sauce made of caramelized sugar and milk. Popular in South America, dulce de leche is used in candies, desserts, and breakfast treats. It can be eaten in cakes, cookies, and cheesecakes, but we like it best in our empanadas. We pair it with ricotta for a flaky pastry fit for breakfast, dessert, or both. And, of course, we can't forget the dulce drizzle.
